About the job
A problem isn’t truly solved until it’s solved for all. That’s why Googlers build products that help create opportunities for everyone, whether down the street or across the globe. As a Technical Program Manager at Google, you’ll use your technical expertise to lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects from start to finish. You’ll work with stakeholders to plan requirements, identify risks, manage project schedules, and communicate clearly with cross-functional partners across the company. You’re equally comfortable explaining your team’s analyses and recommendations to executives as you are discussing the technical tradeoffs in product development with engineers.
Our goal is to build a Google that looks like the world around us — and we want Googlers to stay and grow when they join us. As part of our efforts to build a Google for everyone, we build diversity, equity, and inclusion into our work and we aim to cultivate a sense of belonging throughout the company.
The Core Planning and Design team is responsible for the publications which define our global network topology build both in terms of infrastructure and network capacity. You will work with the team to define tooling and processes, work cross-functionally with a variety of partner teams, and provide design support for infrastructure and network capacity.
Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google’s product portfolio possible. We’re proud to be our engineers’ engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
Coordinate production of build plans including long-term infrastructure and capacity.
Define the sequence of infrastructure and capacity deployments.
Own network cost allocation strategy, product definition, and chargeback.
Coordinate the introduction of core products, solutions, architectures, network offerings, application and infrastructure level optimizations, and any associated updates.
Partner with cross-functional teams to manage plans and associated topology changes.
